Cami Fanning posted a video to YouTube showing her 11-month-old godson named Aryeh, “lion” in Hebrew, peering through the glass of the Zoo Atlanta lion enclosure on Friday while dressed in his infant-sized lion costume.
A baby dressed in a lion costume was captured bonding with a real lion through the glass of its enclosure in a zoo in Georgia, USA.
“The lions were immediately interested in our little lion cub, and it wasn’t long before they couldn’t stand their curiosity any longer and came right up to the glass! Aryeh was completely unfazed and interacted with the lions for a few minutes!” Fanning wrote in the video’s description.
The video shows the baby coming face-to-face with one of the adult lions, with only the few inches of glass between them.
Aryeh places his tiny hand on the glass, and a few seconds later the lion does the same.
The lion seems as fascinated by Aryeh, even following when the youngster crawls away along the ledge outside the glass wall.
